Founder’s Story

Prior to 3dHoudini, Chris worked as a Senior Technical Build Specialist at TEAGUE, a global design consultancy, where he was the lead builder of the full-scale prototype for Blue Moon, the lunar lander for Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin space project.

While building Blue Moon, Chris became frustrated watching a $600K CNC router get used only once or twice a month. It was painful to watch the company lose potential revenue due to idle equipment. It was clear to him that the solution was a freelance-type platform, like Fiverr and Upwork, but for manufacturing.
In 2019, Chris set out to build 3dHoudini, but shortly after the platform launched in 2021, Chris’s son, Yannick White, came to him with an idea. Yannick had been fascinated with NFT technology since 2018 and had been wrestling with the idea of a tokenized CAD design. It wasn’t until using the 3dHoudini platform that he realized his idea’s full potential. Once Yannick was able to get Chris to understand what an NFT was, everything changed. Since then, they have been working to integrate their visions.
